Parties and Celebrations

Page history last edited by Jane McManus 6 years ago

Be careful to use age appropriate items.

Food and small objects present choking hazards for children under 3.

Be mindful of food and latex allergies.

If dealing with a large group, break the children down into smaller groups to make the round of activities. (Winton usually uses Apples, Bananas, Cherries and Oranges. Then, when I want everyone together I call "fruit basket mix-up.")
